It’s good. The smell as it comes out of the tap is heaven. If it was possible to marry a smell then I would marry this smell and never cheat on it with any other smell.

3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Capone’s. I love this aroma, freshly picked blueberries fresh with that mild spicy aroma, and some hops and citric notes. The color is purplish gold color with fizzy pinkish head. The palate is on the light side, very lively, with a huge blueberry flavor coupled with pale malt and hopcitrus. However, the taste is a bit of a letdown after experiencing the huge, fresh blueberry aroma. As a side bonus, I had huge blueberry hop burps for 2 hours after quaffing this one!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 Poured clear orange with medium off-white head (faintly blue). Quickly dissipating, with little lacing. Strong aroma of sweet blueberries. Taste of blueberries, candy sugar and grains. It kind of tastes like duncan hines blueberry muffins. Thin texture. Not too bad, once in a while.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Summer 2006 bottle from American Beer Distributors, drunk on 9/27/06.
Brassy-golden colored body is chalk-full of large bubbles, bursting on the surface and creating a small, white head that slowly dissipates to partial cover. Little to no lacing produced. Obviously filtered/force-carbonated, the beer is highly clear.
Meaty, juicy, highly aromatic blueberries stand in the nose. Very strong up front, asserting the fruit character of the beer and adding a light perfumey, berry-skin-like note through the middle. It dries out a good deal (it’s not very sweet to begin with) and captures malt notes of straw and light breadiness. A slightly sourish note sits on the end, not quite metallic, almost yeasty and certainly redolent of some mineral or other. Blueberries continue to sit foremost in the nose. Strength is medium, but complexity is rather weak; it still seems like a blueberry drink first, followed by malt notes as an afterthought. Alcohol not noted.
Dry, grainy pale malts with a touch of substantial doughiness provide texture for a soft, natural blueberry essence that is lightly sweet, lightly tart at times and quite full in the overall flavor. Light graininess and some simple sugars play about on the end, but the carbonation makes it rather gassy and overly loose in mouthfeel, without much defining beer character. Some mild hop bitterness. That being said, the blueberry flavor is quite true, and never cloys. Just can’t get past the filtration/carbonation levels with this brewery’s bottled products.

Had this on tap many times. I cant get over the aroma, which reminds me of walking into a bakery early in the morning after they have made fresh baked muffins. A light golden color to it with a fizzy, sweet bitter taste. The color seems to be a bit darker out of the bottle but tap is better with carbonation for some reason. Great summer time beer.
